Creamy Apricot Oats

Sometimes those pregnancy cravings strike like lightening, am I right?!

And, the resulting recipes can either be a stroke of brilliance, or a kitchen urban legend that gets passed on at baby showers for the rest of your life.

I think this recipe is in the brilliant category, AND its secret ingredient gives it added protein and creaminess, without dairy! THIS makes my heart happy, after the many years we spent dairy free for our kids’ health.

Why apricots? Because I have been looking into foods that support pregnant women and apricots give vitamin A, some fiber, and sweetness that we all need in our lifestyle. A little goes a long way here, and I don’t think you will miss ANY flavor because dicing them up gives you a little bit in every bite without adding too many carbs.

  • 3 unsulfured, dried, apricots diced up
  • 1/2 Cup, dry, rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 Cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Monk Fruit Extract Powder, or use any sweetener you love to taste.
  • Pinch of Nutmeg, we get ours from here or here
  • Pinch of Mineral Salt, from here or here
  • 1/4 teaspoon Apricot Extract, from here or here
  • 1/4 Cup Liquid Egg Whites, either carton or fresh


  • Dice the dry apricots as small as you’d like. Add them to the pot along with all other ingredients EXCEPT apricot extract and liquid egg whites.
  • Boil for a few minutes, stirring well and watching for boiling over (ask me how I know). Then, turn off the heat.
  • Add 1/4 Cup liquid egg whites once the heat has been off for a few minutes, but it is still hot, stirring constantly while pouring them in slowly so that they do not become scrambled but emulsify into the oatmeal and provide a creamy texture.
  • Add 1/4 teaspoon of Apricot extract last, and allow the oatmeal to continue to sit and thicken up for about 10 minutes.
  • Enjoy with some additional protein if desired, and if you follow the Trim Healthy Plan this falls into an E meal setting.

Nursing Mama Nuggets

I became a nursing mama for the 7th time in 2020. And, thanks to Trim healthy mama I feel that this has been one of my best post partum periods.

I have not needed a whole lot of support with teas or anything else, no extra pumping, I just eat lovely God-made foods that have helped my youngest beauty thrive while I have released weight consistently.

I have discovered two ingredients that have really kicked my production up, without me even trying to, consistently. Duo Greens powder and Oatmeal in any form.

So, I made these to help support a mama on the go, or those middle of the night nursing sessions that leave you floundering for something to stuff in your mouth so you can get back to sleep when the baby does.

I have included links to some of our favorite products below. If you choose to make a purchase through these links, I may receive a small commission, at no additional cost to you. This helps me continue to create free content for you to enjoy, and to support my little, large, family.

I mix all the dry ingredients together and then add the Applesauce. Mix it until it comes together with no dry powder, and you can leave it in the bowl and eat it straight or make into a bar/balls.

***This is a single serve addition to an E meal or snack on the Trim Healthy Mama Plan. Please add some berries or a half a banana to this to round out your meal***

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

We are fortunate in the Treehouse, both of our children with Celiac Disease tolerate certified gluten free oats without a problem. While they are still not as cheap as the regular type, they provide us with a frugal breakfast for our large family.

I actually consider this grain a ninja in the gluten free pantry. If you can tolerate it, don’t leave the store without it!

  • 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pure Monk Fruit Extract Powder (or your preferred sweetener to taste), optional
  • 1/4 Cup Applesauce


Mix all ingredients together, except applesauce, and cook on High in a small pot, stirring frequently until thickened. Pour into your bowl an top with 1/4 Cup unsweetened applesauce. Mix together, or grab a small dab of applesauce with each bite.

*I have made this without sweetener and it is still sweet enough due to the applesauce.

This is a single serve recipe and is an E meal on the Trim Healthy Mama Plan.
